The National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) has shared with me the list of 18 girls named to the 2016 NSCAA High School All-Central Region selections (also known as the All-Midwest team).
Of the 18 girls, ten are from Missouri and six are from the St. Louis area. Three were previously named High School All-Americans, including Anna Lawler (Rockwood Summit), Kirsten Davis (Westminster) and Alyssa Seitzer (St. Teresa), chosen from this All-Region list.
Courtney Reimer (Duchesne), now training at SLU along with St. Teresa’s Alyssa Seitzer
Abby Basler (Ursuline), training with Illinois State in preparation for their first exhibition match at Milwaukee on August 13th. Abby is the only player on this list NOT recognized by the STLHighSchoolSports as a 1st team All-Metro player. Hmmm…
Gabby Lawlor (St. Joseph/Wisconsin) has begun her final Club season with SLSG ECNL in advance of her final season with the Angels and her college commitment to Wisconsin
MacKenzie Litzsinger (Rockwood Summit/SIUE) finishe with 33 goals and 12 assists this past season, third best in the St. Louis area while partnering with Anna Lawler.
In addition to these six St. Louis area athletes, junior Club teammates Brionna Halverson (Bolivar/FCKC Juniors/SLU) and Jenna Winebrenner (Park Hill/FCKC Juniors/Notre Dame), senior Addisyn Merrick (Lee’s Summit North/Kansas) and Alyssa Seitzer (St. Teresa/SLU) were also recognized from Missouri.
Thanks to the NSCAA for sharing this list with me, allowing me to help to recognize these ladies.
